HOW TO LISTEN TO AND APPRECIATE JAZZ

by | Read by Ted Buehrer

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Kenyon College Associate Professor of Music Ted Buehrer covers the history, techniques, and development of this uniquely American musical genre. The 14 lectures begin with the basics, bringing non-musicians up to speed on the fundamentals of music and musical terminology. Buehrer then launches into a broad survey of the art form and its most influential practitioners, tracing the story of jazz from ragtime through swing, bebop, and a profusion of other styles into the modern era. The lectures are supplemented by a two-CD compilation, "Jazz: The First 100 Years," which provides musical examples of points covered in the lectures. Buehrer's presentation is a bit stiff, but the content is superb and will enhance any jazz lover's listening experience. M.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
